Summer is all about having a bit of fun with your clothes and letting your personality shine through. Which is why we were so excited to see the influx of prints on S/S19 catwalks! Not only has there been a revival of well-loved retro prints, but also a few more additions we’re sure you’ll love.
One classic print that shows no signs of ever falling out of trend is polka dot. This timeless print is the perfect balance of cute and retro, it’s all up to how you style the accessories! We love the feminine fit of this pretty polka dot Onjenu summer dress. The high low skirt creates beautiful movement whilst you walk making it perfect for both a day and night wardrobe. (Also available in pink).
Pair with classy black court heels, (like these Unisa shoes) and red lipstick for a sophisticated 50’s look. Alternatively, keep the look fun, youthful and casual with chic white pumps, such as these from By Malene Birger.
Animal PrintIt’s no secret that here at Berties we are huge fans of animal print, (find out why here), so we couldn’t leave it out of our top summer prints. The past few seasons have seen animal print go from strength to strength, being a staple of both catwalks and wardrobes everywhere. Its versatility is so popular, in fact, that some fashion writers have started considering animal print as a neutral. Here are three examples of just how easy animal print is to wear:
Keep it casual with just a hint of animal print, like this gorgeous skirt by Oui clothing. The black and white of the zebra print make a great base of an outfit ready for you to dress up or down. Dress with a simple tee and pumps for a relaxed look. Or add instant drama to the look by opting for a completely monochrome palette, with heels and a sharp red lip.
Any outfit can be transformed into an on-trend and stylish look by adding some statement leopard print. This oversized shirt by Blank London can be worn on top of simple jeans and tee, to elevate the look to off-duty model chic.
When in doubt - go all over animal print! Nothing says summer like this snakeskin print dress by Oui. Perfect for a day out casually paired with white pumps, or dressed up with cowboy boots for an evening look.
Mixed PrintCan’t decide which summer print to go for this season? Fear not, as we have the print for you. Introducing the mixed print shirt! Clash your prints for a stylish look with an edge. We love these By Malene Birger, which feature a mix of floral patterns and block colours for a truly unique look.
We’d recommend wearing it over a classic white tee and jeans combination, and add some emphasis to the mix of colours with this equally unique necklace by Envy jewellery.
Whether it’s polka or animal print, dress or shirt, there’s one thing that’s certain - you can’t go wrong with a summer print this season! We’re always adding new printed garments into our 'new in' collection, so why not head over and find your next show-stopping outfit!
